He also says that there could be some kind of connection. It’s not only a theoretical possibility, and not entirely implausible either. There’s also some reason I’ve included the above quote in my post on Dark Matter, it explains my frustration:
Herman: “We are now being led to the conclusion that this is not a one-way street. It will take some people to take the first steps to discover what is going on but it will be just those very first steps that ultimately make the discovery. However there will be others around the globe.”
What does the phrase “others around the globe” refer to? I would say it means the large majority of the population of the world. Think of it this way: the whole science fiction and movie industry is made up of people in the developed nations. These “others around the world” include people whose whole existence revolves around these fields. It would be a lot harder for them to come forward and say that they have scientific information of this world. So we’re about to see, because of Black Holes, that many people will be the ones taking the first steps and discovering that in the future black holes may not have energy, they may not be all those things that the scientists think.
